Colonna Palace is located centrally within walking distance of many sights, but as it's located across Parliament, taxis cannot stop at any entrance and you will have to walk (although I would try to avoid taxis in Rome, or at least be aware of the different scams!) This being Roma, political demonstrations seem to be a daily occurrence, so the area around the hotel/the square it shares with the Parliament building is constantly blockaded - you'll have to explain to the police why you need to enter. On the plus side (few and far between at this hotel), got to see a marching band performance in front of Parliament one morning.
Check in was fine, and the lady was nice enough. Room was of a decent size, but saying it was dated would be an understatement (actually the entire hotel has probably seen better days). Everything was showing wear and tear, and the safe wasn't working. Fortunately, the bathroom was updated relatively speaking, and clean. Lots of creaking and banging at night, not to mention sirens and terrible sound-proofing, so don't expect restful sleep.
Checkout was terribly inefficient, as most front desk staff insist on playing the classic Italian game of "let's see how long I can pretend I can't see or hear the guest standing in front of me". When they do deem you worthy of acknowledgment, their attitude is dismissive at best. Not a pleasant stay overall, and would not recommend.
